To help celebrate Bermuda's 400 year anniversary the island is hosting a festival
of culture over a seven week period using various venues to showcase differing types of entertainment from both here and overseas. Tonight we are off to see Lord of the Flies
at a place, which I have no clue where it is called the Ruth Seaton James Centre. From the back catalogue of my memory labelled 'School,' William Golding's novel was a masterful piece about human flaws where anarchy defeats order and when I looked at the listing's a month or two ago this jumped out at me.
We are going with two friends and I'm looking forward to it, particularly as it is being performed by a touring theatre company called Pilot Theatre
, who when not on tour are resident at the York Theatre Royal
and from their blog they seem to be enjoying their stay!
Then on Saturday we're off with some other friends (gosh we are so popular) to see a show called Serious Stand Up
. Two Comedians, one local and the other Englishman John Oliver, who has made his name on The Daily Show with John Stewart
and he also hosts The Times
podcast, The Bugle
. Should be good.
